This Is It

Most of us want what we want, not what we need. We are looking for safety and security, which exist only in our longing, no in reality. Life is here now and this now is totally unknown. All we have is this moment-unconditionally. This Is It. Most of us want our conditioning because it gives us a sense of self, and the sense of self holds the promise of safety, security and predictability.

`Apparently, if people do not have difficulty, they often do not experience a sense of self because they define themselves through struggle. In adversity they feel themselves pitted against something or someone. Without that sense of “againstness,” people often have no other reference point from which to recognize themselves!' ~Paul L
